At the recent New York State Association for Solid Waste Management (NYSASWM) landfill operator’s certification training held in Syracuse, New York on March 7th and 8th, 2017, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) provided a brief update on the status of the proposed 6NYCRR Part 360 regulations.
Since the initial public comment period closed on September 13, 2016, the NYSDEC has been busy developing a responsiveness summary and revised expressed terms and regulations to address the approximately 4,500 comments received from nearly 230 entities. Some significant changes have been made to many of the proposed regulatory sections.
The NYSDEC is planning a second public comment period in the May or June 2017 timeframe. The exact release date is not scheduled at this time. The overall target for promulgation of the revised Part 360 regulations is November 2017. So get ready! Further updates will be posted as more information is available.
